Patient-oriented research asks everyone to push beyond what is familiar and embrace new ways of working.
Can-SOLVE CKD has created a suite of training programs to help network members enhance their skills and knowledge in this area. Five programs are available, covering a wide range of subjects from knowledge translation to Indigenous cultural safety.
These programs, which form the branches of the Can-SOLVE CKD Learning Tree, are based on the findings of a 2017 survey that determined the greatest training needs in patient-oriented kidney research. They are rooted in the core values of Respect, Reciprocity, Relevance, Relationships, and Reflection.
A new publication in the Journal of Kidney Health and Disease highlights the Learning Tree developed by the Can-SOLVE CKD Training and Mentorship Committee. Read now: “Program Report: Can-SOLVE CKD Network Presents an Inclusive Method for Developing Patient-Oriented Research Tools.”
Our Goal: Develop, implement and evaluate a Respectful, Relevant, Reciprocal, Responsible and Reflective training curriculum ensuring the engagement of patients, researchers, and Indigenous communities in the Can-SOLVE CKD Network.
